218.2

Amazingly enough I am still at it. Unfortunately I have only lost a pound in the last three weeks but there is a reason for that....






I went to see this little boy...
and his momma and daddy....
and I ate lots of food that I would NOT normally eat....
and I gained four, almost five, pounds. Amazingly I was able to drop those pounds in a few days. Im sure the most of it was water weight but It slowed down my weight loss progress. It was SOOOOO worth it. I need to blog about my trip....but I haven't had time. I promise Ill get to that on my other blog.


Remember my goal of getting into these pants before I went to Michigan?

Well it worked. The pants you see me in above are these pants. I am now wondering if I should go try on some sixteens. Its always good to have a size smaller in your closet. It motivates me and I can try them on here and there to just "see" if they fit.


I was very disappointed in my new 100 dollar Zumba videos. They are not comparable to the old ones. I am trying to embrace them but its hard. Maybe I just don't do well with change when it comes to Zumba (wink). I was gifted a video by Bob (the biggest looser trainer) and they kick my little.....I mean BIG booty. I LOVE them and want to go get more. I have never felt so sore in my life....and just from doing tons of lunges. LOL Its probably good to break up your work out anyway. I was doing Zumba ALL the time.


So another pound down. I'm excited about that. If you look close in the new pictures you can see that I have quite a few rolls around my middle still. I am pretty sure those will start disappearing even more during the next twenty pounds. I am VERY excited to get rid of my muffin top. (yucky)


I have a very personal question. Now that I have Incorporated more veggies into my diet I am suffering from a side effect that is not very (ahem) lady like.............GAS! Does anyone have any advise? I cant stop eating my veggies but I also cant be having this side effect at work. HELP ME!!!!!!!


I'm finding my skinny more and more every day!!!

Hi Rebekah! A friend of mine shared your blog with me. I am currently down 122 lbs. with about 42 lbs. to go!

To answer your gas question...it happens!!! My main issue has been constipation. My doctor had me start taking a laxative a day to help with everything.

I can't wait to read more about your weight-loss journey!

Hi sis,
You are doing great. As far as your gas goes, I would recommending googling your veggies and finding out which ones are more carb/phosphorous prone. Veggies such as broccoli can cause gas. However, since greens are more ruffage than anything else, there is really no way to stay away from gas completely but it can be eliminated if you change things up a bit.
Look at this website.

OMG, just realised who that little boy is from reading your other blog! Wow. I have pics of my little darling, but I could not imagine visiting her. I don't know if I could handle it. I guess I've been trying to act as if she wasn't... wasn't anything. I have a habit of disassociating (self-diagnosed). It helps me cope. Maybe not such a good thing though. Lovely photos. So glad you had a great time. God bless you!!!
